What do you do to keep members involved? Here are just a few things I do.
1. Have a forum game area. Here are a few:
Change a letter - a member starts with a word - lets ay pack, the next member changes the first letter, perhaps to jack..and so on.
Google it- A member starts by posting a photo then they will tell the next person what to google and post a silly photo of.
2. Daily photo thread - My site is about cats so I do a daily photo of a members cat with a funny saying on the photo using Gimp or Photoshop and create a daily thread.
3. Cat of the month - I also do a monthly "Cat of the Month" and highlight it for the entire month in the sidebar area with a photo of the cat and link to the "Cat of the month" thread.
4. Monthly newsletter.
What are some things you do to be "different?"
